Steam Museum
Steam Museum
Founded in June 2000 the extensive museum portrays Swindon's rise from a small town to a vital transport centre and railway works. Once occupying a vast site, many of the old buildings are now cleared, with others transformed into retail units. However, it was almost inevitable that the old railway museum in Faringdon Street (see SU1484 : The Platform) would be moved into the much larger premises here. In fact it boasts a floorspace of about five times that of the former.
